Nice modern mosque at the edge of the largest cemetery of Istanbul.
Some might find the inner decoration over the top, I was positively surprised by this different approach of a female architect. In good steps of the Sultan's architect Sinan.
To have a delicious, traditional lunch and dinner, you should go to Kanaat Restaurant in Uskudar. The third generation of the family directs this special and old-fashioned restaurant and serves many food made from vegatebles and meat, desserts etc.You will enjoy the tastes.
This one is literally by the bosphorus. There are specialties among the fish meze, which should be tried. Grilled octopus is also good. There were many business teams dining when we were there. So it's kind of international environment. If you're travelling from the European side they have a special ferry, don't forget to ask.
Probably the best doner in Istanbul ! Love the Inskeder Kebap they make and the very good herbed lentil soup both fantastic flavor and taste. Unfortunately we cant visit Turkey this summer since the political situation is not very stable as we are reading in the news but i hope that the next summer we will be back !
The hotel is quite clean and it is an ideal selection if you have business in the area.
The price was reasonable and good value for money.
We had requested a non smoking room and it was OK. The selection in the minibar is quite adequate.
Free coffee and tea was offered in the rooms also.
